Na Rossa playing with a strong breeze in the first half went into the break leading by a single point.

The last attack of the game Donal Trimble saw his effort come off the upright and bar and roll to safety as Naomh Ultan hung on to win by a point and will now play Red Hugh’s in the final.Good luck in the final from all at the club.The lotto draw took place last Monday evening in the hall.

Mo Farah’s Golds should not be devalued by Alberto Salazar accusations: Sebastian Coe

first_imgMo Farah should be respected for winning two golds at the Rio Olympics despite his coach Alberto Salazar being under investigation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), IAAF President Sebastian Coe said.American Salazar, who has worked with Farah since 2011, was accused of violating anti-doping rules in a BBC documentary last year, including allegations he had given 2012 Olympic 10,000 metre Silver medallist Galen Rupp the banned anabolic steroid testosterone.Farah became the only the second man to retain the 5,000 metre and 10,000 metre Olympic titles at Rio last month but his association with Salazar led to a taint of suspicion.”There are some systems where you can’t have that presumption of innocence any more, but Mo – and I am not here as his spokesman or his defender – has made all his readings public,” said Sebastian Coe, who won 1500 m golds at the 1980 and 1984 Olympics, was quoted as saying by the Times newspaper.

USADA has been investigating him but is yet to release a finding.Farah has been exonerated by UK Athletics who found no impropriety on his part after receiving the initial findings of a review into his relationship with Salazar.advertisementHe also agreed to release blood test results going back to 2005 – against the advice of governing body the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).last_img read more
